Dear Editor,

Do your readers live in CHAOS? (Can’t Have Anyone Over Syndrome)? Are their lives so cluttered up that just paying for their newspaper subscription is a daunting task?

I, Marla Cilley (The FlyLady), have been helping millions of women get organized for many years. My popular newspaper column is featured every Thursday in the Deseret News in Salt Lake City, Utah, and is read by over 40,000 faithful readers every week who depend on my advice, wisdom, and common-sense approach to running their households. I understand the overwhelming feeling that comes with domestic responsibility and have successfully overcome this issue myself by creating a system that works in babysteps and routines. It is my passion and mission to help other women who are beleaguered by an inability to run households. My methods for change have been instrumental to thousands of readers who dramatically change their lives (as so many testimonials profess) by being mentored by me.

In addition to my newspaper work, my writing goes out to my own e-mail lists of over 480,000 devoted subscribers. I have written best selling books (Sink Reflections, Bantam and the Saving Dinner series, Ballantine) and maintain popular websites with content changing daily and Facebook.

I would like to offer these columns to your newspaper for weekly publication at no cost. Enclosed you will find samples of their most recent columns. If you would like to see more of the columns, you are more than welcome to peruse the archives at The Deseret News by visiting their website,

It is my heart’s desire to help your readers lead better lives. I know I can do this through my column and believe you will see the hope I offer your readers by reading the samples I have sent.

I look forward to hearing from you and hopefully working with you in the future!


Marla Cilley (The FlyLady)
